# Adjacent Angles Linear Pair

Adjoining angles Linear pairingAdjoining angles are two angles that share a common node, a common side, and no common inner points. Studies of adjacent angles, line pairs, and vertically opposite angles with visual representation for better understanding. The ?BOC and ?AOC are linear pair angles.

## Adjoining angles

When a beam is turned around its end point, the degree of torsion is referred to as the angular distance between the beam's start and end positions. Minutes and seconds hands of the watch make an angel, which is displayed as AOC, and hours make another angel, while seconds are displayed as AOC.

The two pairs of angles, e.g. ?AOC and ?COB, lie next to each other and are called adjacent angles. Below are some example neighboring angles: A pair of adjacent angles whose dimensions sum to a linear one is called a linear pair. Angles in a linear pair are complementary.

The ?POB and POA are side by side and if the total of the adjacent angles is 180°, then such angles make a linear pair of angles. If a pair of line segments intersect, as shown in the following figure, four angles are made. ?AOC and COB face each other vertical and ?AOC and COB face each other vertical.

They are also referred to as perpendicular angles or opposite angles. So when two contours cross, two pairs of angles opposite each other form: ?AOD, ?COB and ?AOC, ?BOD. In accordance with the set of angles, in a pair of crossing straight line, the angles opposite each other are identical.

Is it possible to juxtapose two angles that are not a linear pair?

Yes, it would mean that the total of the adjacent angles is not 180º. Think of a pair of adjacent sharp angles, they are side by side, but not a linear pair. The angles ABC and CBD are next to each other, they have the same beam BC. However, their total is not 180 degree, so they do not make a line.

The angles ABC and CBD are adjacent, but not a linear pair.
